Here is a book cart that I made for my church from Walnut Burl veneer and Walnut. The entire cart was custom veneered by me. The outside panels have a bookmatched pattern that looks a little like a ghost. It is approximately 30 inches wide and 43 inches tall. The wheels are rated to hold 1000 lbs so it should hold quite a few books. The finish is a home recipe of polyuerethane and mineral spirits with wax as a final touch.
